as if reviving merck were too big and as challenge, you've also taken on the challenge of investigating the jerry sandusky and what it says about penn state and why it wasn't spotted earlier and that was earlier. why in the world would you do that? >> the question that my wife asks all the time. she has a list of things she prefers that i do. i think the bottom-line here is that authority of the board of trustees. is this my alma mater? this is a school i grow up that completely changed my life. so when this thing happened sitting in the boardroom, people look around and said is there anyone in this room who has had the experience with this kind of widespread public situation before. and i didn't raise my hand. and then i think the second question was, is there anyone here that's handled by apps is?
